[aprssig] Universal digi path

If the traveler sends a message to the home station, the home station's
local IGate will pop the traveler's position packet out (once) onto local RF
along with the message.

These days most homes have internet access of some sort (or the next-door
neighbor does).  QRMing the entire network (thereby reducing throughput for
ALL the other users) is not courteous.
